LeVeL33 Craft Brewery Restaurant & Lounge Introduces Saturday Brunch

It’s no secret that when one mentions Level33 Craft Brewery Restaurant & Lounge (that was quite a mouthful), after work drinks come to mind. Its right-smack-in-the-heart-of-the-CBD location is probably a good reason for that. While we’ve previously dined there for dinner (and noted the food’s not too shabby), its sky-scraping views of the horizon makes it a pretty cool place for brunch—basking in the warm sunlight whilst indulging in a perfect eggs benny does seem pretty good.

Now shedding its after-work-drinks perception, Level33 has taken on a lighter, more airy outlook with its introduction of Saturday brunch; an all-you-can-eat buffet of brunch-y items like eggs benny, and less brunch-y (but so good anyways) items like fresh seafood and charcuterie at $58 per person. There’s also an option for endless flow of craft beer cocktails at an additional $38 per person. Take it.

The blue stout mojito starts off refreshing before quickly developing deep roasted flavors of its house-brewed stout, finishing with dark velvety notes punctured by soda and lime. It’s interesting (there’s no other way to say it), and perhaps an acquired taste. Die-hard stout lovers might not enjoy it—the addition of soda fizzes out the nutty creaminess of a good ol’ stout, but it’s unique, we’ll give them that.

We much preferred the easy-drinking blond mojito in all its “blond” drinking splendor. Less complex, it is incredibly refreshing (a good mix of blond lager and soda), mildly hoppy, with soft fruity notes of wild strawberry and zesty lime.

For beer lovers, tasting flights of their five of their house-brewed craft beer are also available (not inclusive in the buffet). It’s a great way to sample a variation of beers. The blond lager is light and mildy hoppy with a gentle bitterness, while the IPA is bitter and hoppy with a fruity finish. We enjoyed the seasonal American ale that’s slightly more bitter than the usual IPA, with a lovely golden creaminess and dry finish.

The buffet spread is sectioned into three: Ploughman’s table, carving table, and dessert. Begin at the Ploughman’s table, where a selection of seasonal salads, cold pastas, seafood and charcuterie are displayed. It is our first meal of the day, so we ravenously help ourselves to the array of fresh seafood and charcuterie; the former so intensely sweet and fresh, we had multiple servings of peppered mackerel and a dozen prawns, at the very least; the latter showcasing much vigor in its choice of meats. The delicate simplicity of the household casalingo salami marks a taste of tradition with its rich flavor and silky, fatty textures. We are told that the selection varies slightly each week.

The carving table boasts of beautifully cooked meats with the likes of roasted beef sirloin, and pork and cheddar sausages, but we eye the egg station (after all, it is brunch). A perfectly poached egg with honey ham is placed atop a soft and fluffy brioche bun, covered in hollandaise, its wobbly rich yolk gleaming a deep orange. The hollandaise is a little too milky and diluted for our preference, but overall flavors aren’t too shabby (for a buffet line).

There is a live station where pan seared foie gras is served with toasted brioche and raisin compote. There are many threading veins in the foie gras, but that can’t be helped. We much preferred the seasonal salads and pastas such as the arugula salad with black olives, almond flakes and red pesto mascarpone, and the penne with arugula, ricotta, pine nuts and green pesto. The flavors are well thought-out and delightful for brunch.

Gorgeous views that span over the Marina Bay waterfront horizon to accompany a lovely brunch spread on Saturday at $35 per head? We reckon that’s good value-for-money. And with a view like that? Not too shabby, we gotta say.
